This was the longest 1 hour and 40 minutes of my life.
“Confessions,” directed by Tetsuya Nakashima, is a brilliant film in every single scope imaginable. It’s a thriller, a drama, a horror, even maybe ironic comedy all in one. It toyed with my mind and made my heart beat fast after I left the theater. It made me flash through my family memories as though I were personally suffering.
The film was released in the beginning of June, just three weeks ago, and now it makes its appearance during the 9th New York Asian Film Festival. It was a big hit in Japan, and I’m positive it will earn rave reviews from this festival.
Anyways – on to the review! And I will try my best not spoil it! Promise!
